A woman has been airlifted to hospital after a crash near Appin.

It happened on the A828 at around 3.40pm yesterday, Tuesday September 7.

One woman was taken to Oban Hospital by air ambulance, while another woman was taken to Belford Hospital.

The road was closed for hours after the two-vehicle crash. A diversion route on the single-track back road leading to the ferry at Port Appin was heavily congested with reports of passing-places filling up.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: ‘Police were called around 3.40pm on Tuesday 7 September  following the report of a two vehicle road crash on the A828, near Appin.

‘Emergency services attended and one woman was taking by air ambulance to Oban Hospital and another woman was taken to Belford hospital for treatment of injuries.’
